The GeoPlace Conference takes place at Manchester United Football Club, on 21st May. It seemed like an opportunity not to be missed. So we asked Street Naming & Numbering Officers, and Custodians:

  • Which streets share the names of famous footballers?
  • Which road names remind you of our hard-working referees?
  • Do you know an address that’s an homage to a great scorer?
  • Is there a building that scores highly in football terms?

They came up with some examples that really are 'back of the net' and our spatial team was happy to map them!

Does your own favourite footballer have a street name?

Use FindMyAddress and FindMyStreet to check and see whether your own favourite footballer has a street named after him/her.
